  • 1. Heat oil in a frying pan and add the first half of the onion. Cook for 2 minutes then add the chorizo and garlic. Fry for a further 5-6 minutes or until the chorizo is getting crisp and the oil begins to change colour. The onion should have a little colour in them as well.

  • 2. Turn up the heat, stir in the kumara, potatoes and paprika. Season to taste. Fry everything together for another 5 minutes or until the potatoes are hot and getting crisp. Scrape the bottom of the pan every now and again to get the crispy bits.

  • 3. To make the salsa, put the avocado, tomatoes and remaining onion in a bowl. Combine and season to taste. Squeeze in the lime juice, add the herbs and give it a gentle mix.

  • 4. Place the chorizo and vege mix in a bowl and top with the avocado salsa.
